What would you do if you could give your child something that is proven to boost her creativity, empathy and cognitive functions, while putting her on a path to increased academic and career success? You'd jump all over it, right?
I've made many visits to hog farms, dairy farms, chicken houses, cattle ranches, feedlots and even to sunflower harvests amid the bitter North Dakota winds. What I've come to understand is that farmers are neither "good" nor "bad." There is simply more than one way to do the right thing.
This generation has come of age in one of the bleakest economies in decades. They're navigating a new reality, in which the future of our social safety net is in question.
I was almost a casualty of the "leaky pipeline" for girls in STEM. My concepts of femininity and being accepted by my peers temporarily interfered with my self-esteem and my grades. Thirty years later, these threats still exist for young women, and they need our help to stay on track.
Until I met Mariama, ten years after her agonizing delivery, I had never heard of vesicovaginal fistula (VVF). That's because in the United States, stories like hers haven't been told in more than 100 years. Today, VVF keeps company with obsoletes like smallpox and polio in the shadows of Western medicine, where its symptoms are referenced in the past tense. But in sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia, more than 2 million women still suffer from the condition.

As I watch the unfolding story of cyber outlaw Edward Snowden skipping around the globe, I'm struck by the talented young man who employers "fought over," despite the fact that he had no formal STEM education. While many young people today are brought up with some innate sense of these skills, as Snowden was, the National STEM Conference in Austin last week dared us to imagine the innovation and creativity that could come from this future generation if they were provided the formal education to reach their full potential in these fields.
Millennials often get a bad rap. As Chelsea Clinton points out in her recent TIME piece, people tend to see us as apathetic and impatient. The universities and college students I work with every day show me that this just isn't true -- well, at least the first part.
Before you file your taxes, here are some of the simple tax tips you don't want to miss.
As "Vice President" of the United States of America it's my enormous privilege to serve the people of this great nation.
In 2012, nearly 28 percent of high school freshmen, around one million students, expressed an interest in pursuing a STEM career. Unfortunately, more than half of those students (57 percent) will lose that interest by the time they reach their final year of high school.
The non-profit Freedom From Hunger is working to help 1.3 million women facing extreme poverty in developing nations work hard towards goals to grow, advance, and develop themselves, their families, and their communities.
